totally agree. I'm just leaving for the airport but today's Daily Wail takes a much more positive line this morning. Sorry haven't time to cut and paste but heading is Maddie snatch story was a fairytale, libel court told. That's more like it.

Yesterday's, Wednesday's, Daily Express article was quite devestaing for Team McCann, Front page and pages 2+3, some of the regular features on normally printed on page 2 were held over to page 4.

Gerry is like a spoiled child, he stamps his foot and shouts if things don't go his way. Think the whole McCann family are the same look at the delectable Philomenas comments on GMTV etc.

Judge Dread wrote:... returning home is not a case of him running away, I think it possible he was strongly advised to return home.

We all know he is an arrogant loose cannon with a volatile temper and I think his legal advisers were quite rightly very concerned that if he did give evidence he would be torn to pieces by Amarals lawyer which might lead to good ol' Gerry letting something incriminating slip!

Be prepared for Kate to pull out next suffering with emotional stress!




This is what I think. After his outburst at a journalist in the morning, I think his advisers probably thought it was too risky for him to take the stand. He's volatile and likely to come out with carp!

I think they're more concerned that he might come out with the truth

Yes, there is something more to Gerry returning home than meets the eye. Being advised by lawyers seems reasonable to me. They are clearly not getting the sympathy they hoped for.

It is the Gillian Taylforth effect all over again. Karma for trying to be too greedy....

Maybe all the patients under his care have read the headlines in the news and have requested that someone else look after them. He has now been called into work to talk his way out of a suspension until all this is cleared up through the courts. Wishfull thinking i know.

On Daily Telegraph website there's a very fair article relating the proceedings in court. McCann is quoted as saying that the detectives who are giving evidence supporting GA are the ones the McCanns rely upon to get the case investigated in Portugal. Another distortion of the facts by GM as GA and those defending him are no longer working in the P.J...

Hi Suzyone, surely he could talk with lawyers whilst in Portugal?? It seems a bit excessive to trael all the way back home under the circumstances for advice. I did however think along similar lines that maybe he is looking for a NEW legal team but again, i'm sure this could be done via phone/internet etc.

Hi Nostra

No my thinking is that his lawyers have advised him to leave so he can't be questioned. He has done all the talking up till now, so maybe there was a fear he was about to be called out on something. Also leaving Kate behind on her own means she can play the fragile card.

Yes, I agree he can use the phone etc but that is logic and nothing is logical about this case.

Another interesting quote from GM is that:'A thesis without evidence is meaningless'. Well, where is the evidence of abduction? All we have is a dubious sighting by a friend of the McCanns. I think the alerts by impartial sniffer dogs are far more reliable and , for me, the Smith family testimony clinched it..will that ever come out??

True Suzyone, nothing is logical in this case and therein may lay the answers....to think outside the box. Am I right in thinking that Amaral/mccanns are not obliged to take the stand/give evidence? If they were both present and they were asked to take the stand would they be obliged? It would be the easiest thing he could have done if this is the case but I just can't see kate being in agreement with this and being left to pick up the pieces.

At first I thought he was returning to sign a new gag to stop the reporting in the Uk. Which has hardly been favourable. I love the Mail's fairytale headline. But he was doing himself no favours out there so I agree that it is highly possible he has been advised to return home. He doesn't play well when the crowd is against him. More practice needed.

who in their right minds leaves a possible life changing libel case,with the worlds media spotlight on them to honour bloody work committments. I tend to agree with other posters that his tendency to showboat could have caused more than a few problems for his legal team. lets hope this fact isnt lost on the judge too.

Hi Halfamo, yes well those are my thoughts exactly! If he was already back at work, full time, I am pretty sure he could've got 3-5 days off for something as important as this. I reckon he left because he knew he wouldn;t be able to control his temper.
